Living Cellular Bio-ink Kits
Reported by: Irina Robu, PhD
CELLINK and RoosterBio developed cellular bio-ink kits. These kits will enable printing of living cellular constructs by combining RoosterBio’s stem cell systems with the universal bioinks that have been created by CELLINK. This combination provides the materials needed for the creation of human tissue needed for research and testing. These kits represent the first commercially available, plug-and-play living cellular bioinks and are available for both commercial and academic use. Erik Gatenholm from CELLINK stated that “this revolutionary, cost effective, and elegantly simple-to-use Bioprinting Kit is exactly what innovators and early adopters worldwide need to propel their research in the tissue-engineering field. By offering a complete package of the right bioink together with the right cells we can finally establish the first standard in the bioprinting industry.”
These kits will minimize the time needed for optimizing a biomaterial-stem cell combination in preparation for research and development.
